It did not take long, once Chance Amie started participating in Syracuse's camp, to see why he is such a coveted prospect. Not only is he a fluid athlete, but he has an effortless throwing motion, puts zip on the ball and has downfield accuracy. A seemingly perfect fit for the Dino Babers' offense.
Amie spent Sunday on the Syracuse campus checking out the campus and getting to know the coaches on a more personal level.
"I toured the facility and campus," Amie said. "I liked the main entrance in the head facility building. It was pretty cool. I talked to all of the coaches. They are really good people. They said things like we need you here and a little bit about themselves."
While spending time with the staff was certainly an important part of the trip, there was one in particular that stood out. That would be his individual meeting with head coach Dino Babers in coach's office.
"It was good," Amie said. "One of my favorite parts of the visit. He just gave me his background and talked about family. Just things about his life."
Participating in the camp gave Amie even more insight into the program. It let him know how the Syracuse coaches coach, interact with players and try to get the best out of them. As Amie assesses which school will be his choice with a decision on the horizon, camping was a critical part of the visit.
"They told me that's how it would be if I were to go there," Amie said. "It was good. I liked how they focus a lot on ball placement."
Overall Amie says the visit was good. He is less than a week until his June 26th decision, a day that holds extra special meaning as it is also his father's birthday. Between now and then, Amie has a lot of thinking to do. First he will visit LSU, who has not yet offered, and go from there.
Syracuse and Houston are both heavily involved. North Carolina received a visit this past Saturday, but they now have two quarterbacks committed in 2018. That likely takes the Tar Heels out of the running.
